“Beautiful Being”

I perceive I am filled with confusion,

And I sense I am becoming an illusion,

If I were to die today,

What would my life leave to say?

My dreams seem too real to be untrue,

How crystal clear I can see right through,

Every object, everything,

This dream must have some great meaning.

I speak yet I hear no words spoken,

My balance is utterly broken,

I slip and set out to fall,

I scream but, again, no words at all.

Giving in, I spread my arms open,

Feeling a power of an unknown emotion,

Just like a bird with broken wings,

Falling freely through the surrounding trees.

There’s a sudden and deep impression to my chest,

I cannot help but question if I have been put to rest,

Such a difficult, unexplained feeling,

As I hear such elegant voices singing.

Now I know if I were to die today,

This wasn’t just a dream, which came my way,

This experience has made me realize,

I am a beautiful being in others’ eyes.

Mistakes… Too late,

What do I do if I have to wait?

Last chance, to take his hand,

One more dance to find out where we stand.

I take this time,

To close my eyes,

To see precisely what I did wrong in my life.

Suspended by my broken energy,

I never knew what he truly thought of me.

Please take my hand,

For one last dance,

Just understand,

Where we stand.

Who I am is a never-ending mystery,

To anyone and everyone, including me.

I grip a pass to a ride and it’s called “My Life,”

I wish you’d hold me tight so we can dance all night.

To feel your passion and soft whispers in my ear,

I hold this image so I know you’ll forever be here.

Oh, never let me go,

Oh, please never let me go.

“Take My Hand”

Once I knew a name,

Once I played the game,

Once I held such shame,

Once I felt much blame.

I had always wished for more,

As I cried, I fell to the floor,

I tried so hard to open a new door,

As I felt my life washing up ashore.

Finally I’d had it with all the tries,

It was then I suddenly realized,

That all of my lonely and hurtful cries,

Would soon be answered by his eyes.

I dreamt of another way,

I knew I’d be safe in his arms one day,

There was no more to think or say.

I was sure in my heart I would soon be okay.

Now I am thankful that the past has passed,

I am safe in his strong arms at last,

The future is all we together hold,

A lifetime of riches brighter than gold.

“Once”

A mother’s true love,

Shows no boundary,

You provide to cold hands a glove,

You help me feel my safety.

Your smile lights up my day,

When I am feeling down,

You teach me another way,

To turn my life around.

You are my angel in disguise,

Always lending a helping hand,

The glistening in your eyes,

You are my footprints in the sand.

I am more grateful than you know,

For everything you do,

I see your bright aura glow,

My angel, my mother… I Love You!

“My Vision of You”

It took one glance,

To convince me to believe, in love at first sight,

My life carries very powerful chance,

You helped to show me a newfound light.

You came into my dream,

With all that you are, what keeps you strong,

I pondered this dream, and what it was to mean,

This was a vision, the beginning of song.

Some spoke of your non-existence,

Those tried to persuade me this would be a journey, so long,

Yet, I hung on, with lack of resistance.

The least I ever knew,

Never seemed to deter you away,

I was so much more to you,

Than I was to my own dismay.

A supportive and determined hand,

You held out in front of my mind’s eye,

Not a word did you speak, not a single command,

Your love told me to give my life one last try.

So why, my dear loved one,

Do we sit in the past, before one another?

Like the sound of a lighting bolt’s hum,

As it retreats back into the sky, as if afraid of its brother.

I pray to have that dream once again,

Filled with your joy and love,

For our eyes to meet, just as they met then,

 While leaving our hearts to rise above.

Only our fates lie ahead,

Leaving us with many questions,

Fate is one we should never dread,

Yet, life does not come with instructions.

“Beyond”

The stars and the moons,

Galaxy upon galaxy,

Do not ask what you know is true,

Look to the sky and ask, “What is beyond me?”

The answers lie to all your questions,

In those bright orbits of fire,

There is no need to mention,

You will find what you desire.

If we as physical beings,

Could take off and fly,

If only we could grow wings,

We would find the answers to “What If?” and “Why?”

For now we can only imagine,

What lies deep within that tremendous sky,

And ponder on what would happen,

If we saw more than meets the eye.
